The success of transportation companies often rests with the trustworthiness of your employees. That’s because you’re obligated to deliver the products you’ve been entrusted with to their final destination on time, complete, and in good condition. But perhaps even more pressing than issues of accurate travel logs and safe practices are your concerns about maintaining a fleet that will not be lured into the other risks prevalent within the transportation industry. Your cargo must arrive unharmed and without the issue of theft. Moreover, you need to know the employees operating your trucks, barges, and planes are using them for the purpose intended and not as a vehicle for illegal or unethical activities, such as the transport of drugs.
Adding pressure to your situation are the often stringent regulations imposed within your industry (such as the strict guidelines of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT)), which affect many of your hiring and personnel processes and decisions.
